### Exceptions to the trends of Periodic Tables

Do we need to know the exceptions to the trends of Period Tables. Such as Oxygen has a lower ionization energy than Fluorine?
If so, could someone please help me with listing out which ones are we suppose to memorize?
Thank you!

### Re: Temperature in PV=nRT

Just adding to that, temperature is the most determining factor of the characteristic of the gas.

### Re: Kp and Kc

I think it just depends on the facts you are given in the problem. When you are given concentrations of gases, you are using Kc, while if you are given the partial pressures, then you should use Kp.

To answer the question, "Do radical electrons count as a region of electron density?"
Yes, it is counted as a high electron density region and can be treated like a lone pair.

### Re: 180degrees and lone pairs?

The electron arrangement and the molecular shape are two different things since the molecular shape only considers atoms but not lone pairs.
The electron arrangement could be trigonal bipyramidal. But could it also be octahedral with four lone pairs? Can someone answer that for me?

### Re: Hybridization significance

Also, hybridization can form more stable and orbitals are lower in energy.

### Re: How to easily tell between Ionic and Covalent bonds?

This is a general way. However, the most accurate way to determine whether the bond is covalent or ionic is to check the electronegativity difference.If the difference is less than 1.5, it is covalent, and if it is larger than 2, it is ionic. Hope this helps!

### Particle in the box: Wavelength[ENDORSED]

I am just really confused about the Particle in the box concept in general. Could someone explain to me why there's only a certain range of wavelength is allowed in the box? And also, how does that link to Quantum World?

### Re: Work Function vs. Threshold Energy[ENDORSED]

When you see it on quizzes or tests, they basically mean the same thing. When light hit the surface, the photon energy (from the light source) has to be bigger or equal to work function/threshold energy in order to remove the electron.

### Re: Formal Charge

Yes, lone pairs are definitely valence electrons. However, they do not have bonds, so you don't have to divide them by two. In order to utilize this formula, I believe that you should be able to draw the lewis structure. Hope this helps!

### Re: Determining States of Matter in Reactions

When an element or compound is in it's aqueous state, it means that it is dissolved in a solvent, and became a solution.
However, when an element or compound has to reach its boiling point in order to be in its liquid state.
So there is a huge difference here.

### Lyman and Balmer Series Significance

I understand how both Lyman and Balmer Series are special groups of lights that matches with the energy level difference. But could someone explain more about it for me? Why is it Significant? What kind of problems will ask you to use the properties of these two series?
